Dropbox is a file synchronization service that lets you keep files on multiple computers in sync similar to Windows Live Sync or the more robust Windows Live Mesh, but available in three different pricing tiers. Dropbox users can share files with others, back them up online, or access them from any computer or mobile device with an Internet connection. So how do you add your Dropbox to the Start Menu? Yep, that’s right. You can add it to Start Menu… using a hack to the Libraries feature and renaming Recorded TV library to a different name. “First things first, head into Customize Start Menu panel by right-clicking on the start menu and using Properties, then make sure that Recorded TV is set to “Display as a link”. Next, right-click on Recorded TV, choose Rename, and then change it to something else like My Dropbox. Now you’ll want to right-click on that button again, and choose Properties, where you’ll see Library locations in the list…general idea’s that you want to remove Recorded TV, and then add your Dropbox folder. Oh, and you’ll probably want to make sure to set “Optimize this library for” to “General Items”. At this point, you can just click on My Dropbox, and you’ll see, well, Your Dropbox! (no surprise there).
